Black Frost Academy by Tatum Rayne

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I don’t belong here, I know it the second I step into Black Frost Academy for the first time. The opulent setting screams of money and is shrouded in secrets but this isn’t my world.
Bound by a promise made to my aunt that I’m determined to keep, I lockdown my fear and embrace the fresh start I’ve been given.
All I have to do is keep my head down and stay out of trouble, which isn’t easy for someone like me.
But then I meet them – The Gods.
And finding myself the recipient of ice-cold distain. Inexplicably lands me in the crosshairs of two rivals.
With the school divided, I’m caught up in a dangerous game of cat and mouse.
Where bullies are pitted against each other, and infatuation takes a deadly turn.
With neither side willing to concede, enemies and allies alike wait with baited breath for the winner to claim their prize.
The girl that doesn’t belong here.

My Review

This book is an intriguing combination of bully romance, an academy setting with a little reverse harem, and a kick-ass heroine. The author does include a little suspense and intrigue into the story. This book is a real page-turner if you like new adult fiction with some steam and these tropes. I absolutely love Bo’s character. She is feisty, snarky, and a little damaged. Of course, she attracts the Gods’ attention at Black Frost Academy. This group of bad boys goes from being mean bullies to swoony boyfriends, or at least most of them. I love how the authors brought the school cliques to light and highlighted them in the story. But I still can’t figure out how her past, her aunt, and his father tie into this story. This story does get dark. I didn’t expect that ending at all, but what a story! 

I love the quote at the beginning of the book from Bo walker, but then we start the first chapter from their point of view. Intriguing Bo is a female character; she is British, bad-tempered, and doesn’t fit society’s mold. Her life as she knows it has just been upturned, and she isn’t ready for the rich and pompous. 

She meets a mysterious man who enchants her but doesn’t seem to catch his name. Omg, I love this chick; her sarcasm, views, and ability to back it up are fabulous. Her first impression of the Black Frost Academy and its Gods (stuck up ) students aren’t great. Still, I love her actions and reactions to the bullying they try, she meets Mr. mystery man, and he happens to be one of the hottest guys in school.

Oh, exciting, we get his point of view as well; so far, I think he is a really hot Alpha-Hole. Bo has a tough exterior, but she also has a traumatic past and deals with survivors’ guilt. I don’t think the bullying is actually helping her any, but I love that she doesn’t conform. 

This book gets twisted as outside forces decide fates, and the Gods get jealous. Bo is in a deep mess with her psycho aunt and these men at her school. This book gets steamy as it turns into less bullying and more reverse harem. This gets very twisted as secrets and hidden warnings come to light. Unfortunately, the bullying is still happening as one of these bad boys can’t seem to pull his head out of his butt. 

I didn’t expect that twist, and I’m not sure how it will play out. Just wow, I didn’t expect that ending at all. Yes, I cried or at least was teary-eyed thru parts of this book. What a story! This book has a lot of ups and downs, but the plotline has come a long way, as do the characters.
